Origami crane

Thousand origami cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.

A thousand paper cranes are traditionally given as a wedding gift by the father, who is wishing a thousand years of happiness and prosperity upon the couple. They can also be gifted to a new baby for long life and good luck. Hanging a in one's home is thought to be a powerfully lucky and benevolent charm.

Be inspired .... we used origami cranes made from shiny cream paper to decorate the wedding table. What about using cranes as name cards or just decorate your home of office space?

Open the window and they will fly☺
